Dear Residents of Pretty Lake:
We have heard concerns vocalized by a number of Pretty Lake residents about
Noble County proposed rezoning to allow a confined Hog farm just over the
border from LaGrange County south of Big Long Lake. Our President participated
in a conference call with a number of other Lake representatives concerning
this issue. Attached for everyone’s information are the results of the call
and information in the attachment that can be used in letters / emails to
public officials, namely the Noble County Planning commission, Noble County
Commissioners, Senator Glick and Congressman Denny Zent.
Ron Kantorak sent an email to each official and stated that he is a concerned
citizen, resident of Pretty Lake and the President of the Pretty Lake
We are sending this information to you as members of the Pretty Lake
Conservation Club and or Property owners around Pretty Lake so you can be
informed. You can take any action you deem appropriate in contacting the
officials making or influencing this decision and share your thoughts with
The PLCC Board is not making any financial contribution nor are we making any
recommendations – we are just providing information regarding this proposed
hog farm operation and potential zoning changes. When the information becomes
available as to where to send individual contributions, if you wish, that
information will be posted on our web site and emailed out.
This is a beautiful recreational area of Big Long Lake, Pretty Lake, Big
Turkey Lake, McClish Lake and Lake of the Woods that we would hate to see it
potentially ruined by a near by Hog Farm.
